Learn how to compare a beacon's proximity property with the value stored to ensure proper response to a beacon's detection.
- [Narrator] In this lesson,…we're going to learn how to handle proximity detection,…so that we can determine whether or not…we should further handle a detected beacon.…The first thing that I wanna do is create a helper function,…that'll return a CL proximity, based on a string value.…If we remember the beacon dictionaries that we created,…the proximity value is a string.…While in a previous chapter…we created a function that'd give us a string value…of a CL proximity object,…we do not wanna compare string values…when working with proximity.…
We wanna compare the CL proximity objects themselves,…as these are enumerated values.…Comparing strings would always return a true statement.…So I'm gonna come over to helpers,…and under get authorization status,…I'm gonna create my new function.…The name of this function is gonna be…get proximity from string.…So in this function,…I'm gonna create a switch statement…that's gonna get the value of proximity string…and in turn,…we're gonna have cases for every possible CL proximity…
